Rebecca left her home in Indiana years ago, without telling her parents, by train to Portland to studying nursing. She decides to stop by Montana to visit her childhood friend, Mariana.
Even though she is only there for a short while, Rebecca meets several people who help her grow in her faith and encourage her in her quest to become a nurse.
Caleb is fascinated by Rebecca's adventurous spirit , even when he doesn't know the whole story.
Will Rebecca have to choose between following her calling and love?
This is not your typical Amish story. I immediately liked Rebecca and her determination to follow where God was leading her, trusting when many things seemed unclear. One of my favorite characters was Millie, who was a rancher's wife for fifty years. Millie had many stories to share, as well as plenty of faith and encouragement. Millie also gave Caleb a talking to when he needed it.
Rebecca was my favorite though, ever since her sister died in childbirth Rebecca has wanted to learn all she can to keep that from happening again. She worked hard to earn her high school diploma, pass her EMT classes, and keep up with her online classes. She wants to help all people, Amish and English alike.
I enjoyed every moment of this book, it is well written and easy to read. There is plenty of good dialogue between Rebecca and Caleb. But this book is so much more than the relationship between Caleb and Rebecca. Faith and inspiration are well woven into the storyline, and fit effortlessly into the storyline. I loved the setting and descriptions of the majestic mountains. Kootenai sounds like a great town to visit :)
Overall, this was a fantastic read from begging to end, with characters that will capture your heart. I can't wait to read the next book in the series!
